I have been making with this set so so much this month, I've used it for my my online cardmaking club, my online scrapbooking club and for making things with new products = all of these things I can't show you on my blog. The online card and scrapbooking clubs are unique card designs to those clubs only. The new product is coming in January, so I can't let the cat out of the bag yet there either. So I'm struggling with what to show you here.

The best thing about the Basic Fundamentals Bundle of products is that they're available for the life of the annual catalogue. These products are available until the end of July 2018 so we have over 6 months left to get them. Still I wouldn't wait in case they sell out before then end of the catalogue. Being the Basic range, they coordinate well with ANY colour, Any photos, Any accents, any complements and all shades of brown and grey... I LOVE LOVE LOVE this paper. 

The first card I'm showing you is made with the grey flower fundamentals paper from the basic fundamentals with the grey linen looking paper and a section of Silver Shimmer Trim cut in half. 

The stamp I used was from this months Stamp of the Month A Little Bit of Pun—December Stamp of the Month You are the Sweetest.

I have used the pink Watercolor Pencil to colour lightly the top of the muffin and then the same pencil to colour heavily the cherry. Then I used the Shimmer Brush—Clear to add some sparkle...

The card below is using the light grey linen looking paper as a 4 x 5.25 inch sized piece. Then a white daisy cardstock piece at 3.75 x 5 stamped the You're cute as a Button stamp. I cut these buttons using the CTMH Cricut Artiste cartridge - I used cricut craftroom to overlap two 2 hole round buttons on top of each other to create 4 button holes. (I couldn't layer the flower button because it wasn't symmetrical). You can't get the Artiste cartridge anymore but I'm sure there are other CTMH cartridges that have buttons :) 

After I'd stuck down the buttons with 3-D Foam Tape I decided it needed 4 squares behind the buttons but it was too late to pull them up. The tape is pretty permanent once stuck down... Maybe next card I do I'll add that to it. you could add light pink (bashful) for a baby girl or light blue (glacier) for a baby boy who are usually Cute as a button!! All the part of this card have been added to to my online card club as a bonus card this month, so I can show you and still keep it exclusive for them too. I can't believe how much I've made and how little I can show you. I've made pages, cards, a calendar and more cards, I seriously LOVE this paper pack and it goes so well with the colour of the year 12" × 12" Bashful Cardstock (Especially Bashful Glitter Paper).

    1. Thanks Doreen, they didn't photograph as well as I'd like. I asked for a light box for Christmas for better photographs :)

  3. I like how you get such a striking difference in the look of your cards by changing the colour of the cardstock.
